This Isn't Weird at All: Deena Cortese Arrested for Dancing in Traffic

The Jersey Shore was jailed for disorderly conduct on Sunday after drunkenly dancing in the middle of a heavily trafficked street

If there were any concerns that a sober Situation and a pregnant Snooki would make Jersey Shore a snoozefest -- well, it's safe to say that we have nothing to worry about. Just 12 days into shooting season 6, the gang has been involved in a nude photo leak, a massive bar fight -- and now, an arrest.

On Sunday, Deena Cortese was arrested and jailed for disorderly conduct in New Egypt, N.J. Her crime? Dancing in oncoming traffic. Obviously.

"Deena walked out of a bar by herself and started to dance in traffic. An unidentified driver was attempting to drive around her and she wouldn't let him pass,"a police detective told E! News. "An officer arrested her and she was charged with disorderly conduct. She was processed and released."

Cortese, 25, was bailed out by her parents a few hours after her arrest, which was captured on a cell phone video and cheered by a crowd of beachgoers. She's tentatively scheduled for a court hearing on July 3.

Deena was reportedly not involved in Friday night's bar brawl, which was allegedly instigated by two clubgoers who wouldn't stop harassing Pauly "Pauly D" Delvecchio, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. (The non-cast members are reportedly planning to sue MTV and believe that the tapes of the fight will prove their innocence.) Jenni "JWOWW" Farley sprained her ankle during the melee and is now walking around the boardwalk on crutches.

As for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the heavily pregnant reality star has been keeping a low profile, despite the nude (pre-baby) pictures that leaked onto the Internet a few days ago. People reports that she was spotted hitting the club Karma on Saturday night, but didn't drink or try out any of her old dance moves. In fact, says a witness, "she was sitting the whole time." That's one way to stay out of trouble!
